In 2011, Sparta, Kentucky changed for the better. That was the first year that the Kentucky Speedway hosted a NASCAR event. Fast forward to 2019, and NASCAR Monster Energy Series will travel back to the Kentucky Speedway for the ninth edition of the Quaker State 400. In its short eight year history, the Quaker State 400 has only had four winners. Brad Keselowski is a three-time winner, Kyle Busch along with Martin Truex Jr. have each won twice, and Matt Kenseth has one victory at the Kentucky Speedway. With Kenseth no longer racing full time, there are three racers in the field that have a definite advantage over the other. The Toyotas of Joe Gibbs Racing and the Fords from Team Penske have dominated the NASCAR Monster Energy Series Races in 2019. However, two relative unknowns have claimed the last two races. At the Chicagoland Speedway, Alex Bowman and his Chevrolet claimed the Camping World 400. While last weekend’s Coke Zero Sugar, another Chevy driver took the checkered flag, as Justin Haley claimed the weather-shortened race. With Chevrolet taking the last two races, the Team Penske Fords and the Joe Gibbs Racing Toyotas will look to get back to Victory Lane. Let’s take a look at some of the favorites to take the checkered flag in this weekend’s Quaker State 400.
